By now you will already hold your RPL. You are competent in all manoeuvres required to carry passengers, including emergency handling. Your training focus will now shift to learning to navigate around the country with reference to map and ground.
There are around 10 navigation exercises to complete, taking you to areas of the state including the North Coast, South Coast, and Central NSW. You will fly into busy airports with Air Traffic Control as well as quiet country grass airstrips. Navigation training can also be completed during one of our many Air Safaris (<LINK> JH: I need more information to create this), in which we travel interstate to exciting destinations across the country.
Prior to your PPL Flight Test you will need to sit and pass a Theory Exam. You can self-study for this exam, but we run a week-long PPL Theory Course (<LINK> JH: I need more information to create this) where you can learn with like-minded pilots. Alternatively, one-on-one tuition tailored to your situation is also available.
After a minimum of 40 hours total training (including your previously achieved RPL hours), you can sit your Flight Test with an Examiner on board. During this flight you will demonstrate your navigation skills, emergency handling, and some basic and more advanced manoeuvres. When you pass, the entire country is open for you to explore!
